94' Volvo 855T SRS light

Post by henrysin44 »

While driving today the SRS light kept flickering and coming on and off, its off now but yesterday soda spilled on the center console while driving and it drained through the e-brake cover, and the SRS module is underneath it. No fault codes are stored (1-1-1) but the light only stays on for fraction of a second when the key is turned to position, usually it lingers until the car is started. I have another SRS module would it be worth swapping?

If you have a spare module it is worth a try. It sucks that so much electrical is under the center console but Volvo never shipped the '94s with a cup holder and I guess soda / coffee spills never were considered when they they were laying things out.

The problem appeared to solve itself, the SRS light stays on for its normal amount of time, I'm wondering if something is just wrong with the dash as sometimes no lights come on.
